Yacine Belkadi - Jan. 12, 2013, 12:54 p.m.
When building the 80211 DocBook, scripts/kernel-doc reports the following type
of warnings:

Warning(include/net/cfg80211.h:334): No description found for return value of       'cfg80211_get_chandef_type'

These warnings are only reported when scripts/kernel-doc runs in verbose mode.

Fix:
In comments, use "Return:" to describe function return values.

Hi,

I totally missed your email before.

I wasn't even aware of this, is that new? Anyway, applied, thanks.

Yes, it's from December.
Here is the last thread: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/11/26/709
